That's pretty awesome, man. Would it be difficult to add a port at the base of the cradle to get a charger cable through?

I personally wouldn't buy one..but I definitely think it's a cool idea and it looks really good. I could see people buying it.

Very nice work. Hopefully you will consider expanding into other finishes such as satin grays, blacks, whitewash and pastel colors. It's definitely intricate work you have done but the time honored redneck oak is passť-IMHO. But I do get the retro wood look whilest being occupied by high end tech. Awesome pieces, I look forward to seeing more!

Hey guys, first off I just do this for fun and gifts for friends. I am not looking to set up shop or anything. Legally I dont think I could sell them without getting heat from Google lawyers.

@bellino13, Incorporating a USB plug into my designs is in the works. Still trying to figure out the best way to achieve that. A lose or wobbly plug is something I want to avoid.

@ZepRider, The next stand I make I am going to paint it. Black main body, green robot, white lettering, etc. I am old school and even though Oak is pain in the ass to work with, its my favorite, easily obtainable hardwood. If anyone on the West coast wants to send me a sweet piece of redwood or mahogany, I can pm you my address

Very nice work. I love it. I am an Oak wood fan as it is so strong and durable. Something I have done with oak a long time ago and I thought it turned out nice (rather than painting it) I would suggest get some ebony stain to apply to it. Makes it a nice black finish but keeps the grain and looks of he oak. Keep us informed about this as I really love the idea. If you do ever Decide to sell them (even unofficially) let me know via PM. I would buy one unfinished even. The speaker stand looks awesome...
